All incidents can be prevented!
Thats a controversial statement. Yet we know from accident analysis and risk analysis which - in theory - all incidents can be prevented. But that's hindsight talking nicely. Because while we know that despite all the efforts made to prevent incidents, it's a fact that incidents will continue to happen.

Our approach is therefore aimed at:
- to prevent incidents and accidents;
- Adequate and well-trained personnel to respond to emergency situations;
- Thorough and objective research to learn from accidents and incidents. Incident Management TOP wants to help organisations to prevent incidents as much as possible. We also want to create awareness that incidents and accidents happen. Through risk analyses, we can examine which (emergency) situations are most feasible and how to be prepared. In addition, we train in doing an effective accident investigation where the blame is not important. Means of detecting offences and establishing causal relationships, we arrive at truth finding:
- What happened?
- What were the circumstances that contributed that this could happen?
- How or what the circumstances thus created?

TOP uses no complicated theories and methods when it comes to accident investigation. We apply simple and convenient use of methods (for example Bow-tie), so it can be understood by all levels of the organisation and applied. It is very useful to study all small details in accidents but that’s not effective. When TOP is all about being able to make conclusions that put words into deeds and that can easily be translated into prevention measures.
